The site is the brainchild of Jonathan Bergmann and Aaron Sams who are pioneers in the field of using vodcasts in the classroom. They have devised a new method of teaching called Pre-Vodcasting. In this model, students watch vodcasts at home and class time is spent in engaging hands-on activities and directed problem solving. Both Jonathan and Aaron are High School Science teachers in Woodland Park Colorado, at the base of Pikes Peak.
Thus far, students using the Pre-Vodcasting model have been very successful in mastering Chemistry. Jonathan & Aaron believe that all teachers can benefit from vodcasting their lessons live, and that their Pre-Vodcasting model can revolutionise instruction in a variety of subjects.
